Kanban board with more filters


I have a cloud jira version.

Standard kanban board has 2 dropdown filters : Quick filter and Assignee

I have already created some quick filter which are working perfect. Assignee works too.

Can I add a 3th or more filter ? Such as Project (custom field) containing different projects ?

Yes, go to board configuration -> quick filters, and add the ones you need.

Hi Nic,

I did so. As I metioned in my post, it is working file. I would like to have another dropdown filter for Components or Projects or ....


I mean on the right side of the Assignee adding another filterThx,

Oh, it's layout, not "more filters" as you asked.  You want the old style of filter layout, where all the quick filters were listed across the top (there was no drop down).

I prefer that layout as well, despite running into the odd board where the users had gone a bit mad and there were rows and rows of them.

I'm afraid Atlassian have decided the drop-down is the way to go for quick filters.

I'm looking for the exact same thing. Has anyone put in request I can vote for yet? 

Yeh, I am ok with the dropdown but I would like to add extra dropdowns.
